Abstract

Visible to shortwave infrared radiometric data collected by a number of remote sensing instruments on aircraft and satellite platforms were compared over common areas in the First International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP) Field Experiment (FIFE) site on August 4, 1989, to assess their radiometric consistency and the adequacy of atmospheric correction algorithms. The instruments in the study included the Landsat-5 thematic mapper (TM), the SPOT-1 high-resolution visible (HRV)-1-sensor, the NS001 thematic mapper simulator, and the modular multispectral radiometers (MMRs). Atmospheric correction routines analyzed were an algorithm developed for FIFE, LOWTRAN-7, and 5S. -from Authors
